Thanks Whacky.

Yeah I have been doing quite a bit of reading, I suppose theres not much to ask after reading the stickies.

Couple of Q's I have which I havent been able to find much on:
- Whats the best way to go about having your phone work in Eurpope?
- Best Pub in Hamburg?
- Cost per Beer at Wacken? (I drink Becks lol)

That just about covers it haha!! Would love to meet the Aussie Contingent though.

No Aussi, but I'm still trying.

-Your phone must work in EU. (900/1800Hz network)
-I don't know
-€3.50 per 0.4L and €1 deposit on the mug/cub/whatever. For a LITER mug it's €3 deposit, and €7 I think.

Heya :) I only know one Aussie going to Wacken this year so it'd be nice to run into a few more!

Whats the best way to go about having your phone work in Eurpope?
I'm with Telstra and my little pre-paid brick worked just dandily :) Rates are obviously much higher (including calls that are free in Australia like checking credit balance, recharging, etc.) but I'm no chatterbox. When I was out of credit Telstra sent me a text with instructions on how to reload with no credit (having my brother "on call" via facebook was my saving grace).

Best Pub in Hamburg?
Seriously, save your liver when you're in Hamburg :p May as well stick to a bistro bar if you're still keen for drinks.

Cost per Beer at Wacken? (I drink Becks lol)
If you have a vagina - nothing :p Local brew I hear is extremely cheap from the supermarket, but don't quote me cos I only paid for 1 beer in the market area the entire time (back then it worked out to AUS$4.50 for pretty much a pint).

I can teach you. You've got 3 to choose from:
1. Neutral/pompus
2. Houso/bogan
3. Prime Minister

Once you've got enough piss into me 1 will no longer be an option :p

hahaha. I think with just spending some time with "real" aussies I will get the accent down. Anything I can practice now?? :D
